My name is ___________________ and I am from zip code __________ .   

Please sign on as a co-sponsor of H.R. 986—the Robust Global Response to the COVID 19 Pandemic. This bill would require our Treasury Secretary to instruct our US counterparts at international financial institutions to vote to suspend debt service payments that impede the purchase of COVID vaccines and other medical necessities. Please also sign onto a letter being circulated by Rep. Jan Schakowsky to urge President Biden to support a waiver of patent protections on vaccines, so manufacturers around the world can copy the formulas and massively increase production. Thank you.

Script:

President Biden, please support a waiver of patent protections on vaccines, so manufacturers around the world can copy the formulas and massively increase production. The US should use existing legal authority to make sure vaccine makers share their COVID vaccine technology and allocate $25 billion to scale up COVID vaccine production. That will enable everyone in the world to get vaccinated, save hundreds of thousands of lives and bring the global pandemic to an end earlier. Finally, I ask that you also sign an executive order to enable US sanctioned countries to access COVID vaccines and medical supplies. Thank you.
